"NAVY BILL" INGRAM EXPRESSES OPINION [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
"NAVY BILL" INGRAM EXPRESSES OPINION MODESTO, April 8 (Special) —"A junior college football player coming to the University of California has just as much chance to make the varsity as anybody." Such is the belief of "Navy Bill" Ingram, new University of California football coach, as expressed on March 24 in a special interview given to the Modesto Collegian sports editor following a luncheon held at Modesto. "There is no distinction between the J. C. transfer and the man who has been out for the team the year before," Coach Ingram said. "Football is an easy game to learn, and the J. C. man can learn a new system of football and at the same time keep up with the men who have played on the team before."

Students' Car Turns Over; Minor Injuries [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
Students' Car Turns Over; Minor Injuries Different people have missed the presence of Scotty Sterling's car, and have reverently inquired as to its whereabouts. The truth is bound to come out, so here it is. Last Friday night at 10 o'clock, Scotty had a wreck in which the car was turned over. Enid Botterell, Mary Louise Carnes and her escort were all in the car at the time. Since the car fell on the side in which Enid was riding, she fared the worst. Her injuries amounted to several scratches, numerous bruises and the muscles torn from some of her ribs. Now get a car, Scotty! But anyway we offer our sympathy. Wedding bells are the alarm that terminates love's young dream.

Making The Wheels Go 'Round [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
Making The Wheels Go 'Round In the hustle and bustle of college life, we are sometimes prone to forget the little things that go to make the Junior College a success. To three contributing factors to the welfare of the College do we in praticular owe a vote of thanks. The print shop deserves a goodly share of credit for its aid in putting the Samojac out on time. The splendid spirit of cooperation shown by the staff of the print shop to members of the Samojac staff is exemplified in the excellency of the paper from the standpoint of typographical perfection. The Outlook has graciously furnished numerous cuts for this paper, as well as giving the school valuable publicity in its news columns. Many fail to realize the contributions of the Santa Monica Public Library to the,students of the College. The reserving of books for the Junior College is but one of the many services performed for this institution. These little things may look insignificant, but such co-operation is necessary f...
School Songs Absent [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
School Songs Absent Why is there no school song? We can remember the good old days when the "almost one hundred" voices were lifted to the refrain of a small song, urging the boys to victory. Where is that song? Gone, with the enthusiasm that first sponsored its birth? At that time we had no team to speak of, no school precedent, and yet we had a song. Now we have reputation, and an occasional winning team, still the budding operatic voices are given no chance to sound their praise of the dear old school, or urge already fighting boys to fight. What's the matter with our musical genii?
Snapshots Amusing [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
Snapshots Amusing In June, which is not so far off, when those who have their yearbooks are enjoying the dignified pictures of the graduates and laughing over the snapshots, the rest of the students will be looking on with longing eyes, unable to remedy the situation. But for those who still want the opportunity, these next two weeks will be devoted to campaigning. Students, get back of this hard-working staff and buy your "Spin Drifts" now. If the subscription managers can't find you, you find them.

COMPTON HOLDS INFORMAL [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
COMPTON HOLDS INFORMAL The "informalest" of informals was the thought of a dance sponsored by the Student Body of the Compton Junior College on the eve of March 28. The men were attired in cords, and the women in some sort of printed dress. The dance was held at the Lynwood Clubhouse, and the music furnished by an excellent sixpiece orchestra.

Salute the Flag "The attention of all J. C. students is called to the traditional practice on all college campuses in reference to the raising of the United States flag in the morning.

The Makeup Box [Newspaper Article] — Corsair — 8 April 1931
The Makeup Box By Larry Magee PAULINE FREDERICK Last night saw the opening of Pauline Frederick in Maxwell Anderson's "Elizabeth the Queen," at the Belasco Theater. The play is exceedingly well written and acted. Miss Frederick portrays the various moods of England's eighteenthcentury queen to perfection. This is probably one of the most glamorous roles she has ever attempted, yet her characterization could not be improved. Lan Keith as Essex, the greatest of the queen's lovers, also demands a word of praise. These two, with a supporting cast of forty, make the play a decided success. "A CONNECTICUT YANKEE" This old-timer is back with us again, and, even though we are sick of the very sight of it, we must give Will Rogers some credit. He is very good in his part, and pulls down plenty of laughs. "STREET SCENE" "Street Scene," by Elmer Rice, opens tomorrow night at the Mayan Theater. This drama of human hopes and fears should prove one of the successes of the theater season in Los An...
